Very intimate class size, great set up. However they don't like when you purchase via course horse. As it was mentioned over and over again after I had checked in. I am also always welcomed with a very confused and cold "prove your purchase" attitude everytime i've gone. I've still gone maybe 10 times now. Class itself is great but they're not happy to see you from course horse. lol Just show up I guess.

Started the class with a few quick poses (under a minute) before moving on to longer poses. Great variety of poses, chill vibe, will come back!
